The Global Citizenship Programme has been designed to help educate young people on vital issues affecting the world today, prior to taking their place as global citizens.
Are you a school or college group looking for an inspirational trip abroad? Do you want to provide long lasting memories and transformational experiences for your students? The Global Citizenship trips offer educational group travel that helps to promote cross cultural awareness and an understanding of the challenges to development. The awe inspiring Malawian landscape is the backdrop for this programme, providing the ultimate ‘outdoor classroom’ learning experience. Malawi has often been overlooked as a travel destination and as such can offer the enlightened traveller an unspoilt adventure among stunning mountain ranges and rich wildlife.
There are a number of different options for the travelling group; from partnerships with local schools, immersion in village life to a closer look at the sustainability issues facing development in Malawi. Imagine having the chance to take part in lessons in a Malawian school; to play games and create arts and crafts with local students. Such an opportunity would forge life- long connections and an unforgettable insight into local culture.
Your group could also opt to focus on key sustainability issues on the ground: learning about Climate change, deforestation and local wildlife from the Malawians. The trip would also give students the opportunity to visit fair-trade tea estates in Thyolo and Malawi’s leading sugar plantations. Global Citizenship trips are focused on changing perceptions and providing a deep learning experience, against the vibrant and beautiful landscape of the ‘warm heart of Africa’.

A peaceful, welcoming, warm hidden slice of Africa. Malawi is ideal for ‘outside the classroom’ learning experiences. Local entrepreneurs offer inspiring examples of sustainable development, the diversity of landscape is a hive for environmental research, rural communities rich in cultural heritage provide students with a glimpse of behind the scenes Africa.
We love this operator’s commitment to socially responsible and experiential travel. The family-run outfit work hard to ensure the benefits of tourism in Malawi reach local communities whether through the use of local small suppliers and accommodation providers, building links with local community projects or through their responsible employment and training of local staff and guides.
Their trips focus on enabling guests to engage with life, culture and people in Malawi whilst also enjoying spectacular scenery, taking part in adventure activities and staying in beautiful lodges.
